Butwal, June 29
State Health Minister Bimala Kumari Khatri Wali has resigned from her position in the Lumbini provincial cabinet.
A source says she submitted her resignation to Chief Minister Kul Prasad KC on Wednesday, according to a source.
The CPN-Maoist Centre’s provincial committee chief Sudarshan Baral says he has been informed of the resignation of Khatri Wali, a member of his party.
Wali was briefly arrested two weeks ago on the charge of assaulting the wife and the daughter of Ek Raj Basnet, another Maoist leader. Although she was released by the police owing to the pressure from top officials, the Lumbini provincial government had formed a team to look into the case.
